Wednesday, July 23, 2003

Conrad Industries, Inc. is expanding its products and services to include aluminum marine fabrication, repair and conversion for both commercial and government customers. The expansion is part of a $5.5 million investment in one of the company's existing facilities in Amelia, La. Kenneth G. "Jerry" Myers, Jr., Conrad's President and CEO said, "We are extremely excited to announce our entrance into the aluminum marine fabrication, repair and conversion business via our subsidiary, Conrad Aluminum, L.L.C. This expansion is being made possible as a result of the direct support we have received from the State of Louisiana and St. Mary Parish. The creation of this new line of business allows us to selectively pursue opportunities arising out of the changing demands of the industries we serve."

The financing of this expansion includes a $1.5 million grant by the State of Louisiana through the Economic Development Award Program (EDAP) and $4.0 million of Industrial Revenue Bonds to be issued by the St. Mary Parish Industrial Revenue Board. The investment includes a 37,500 sq. ft. two bay building, six overhead cranes and a 300-ton travel lift.
